KPMG Digital Responder automates cyber response from the point of collection to reporting, significantly reducing cost and time of cyber investigations
KPMG Cyber Security Services has launched a new, innovative tool called KPMG Digital Responder (KDR), the first flat-rate cyber investigations tool on the market. KDR allows KPMG to automate cyber response from the point of collection to reporting – at a predictable fixed price. The KDR tool will reduce costs of cyber investigations, shift time spent from collecting data to actual analysis, and most importantly, provide more time to organizations to make faster, more informed strategic business decisions to manage potential cyber security risks.

“A cyber investigation can wreak havoc on an IT budget as it’s an open-ended cost depending on the impact of the incident, which can start in the thousands of dollars and can go up to the hundreds of thousands of dollars,” said Tony Buffomante, US Leader for KPMG Cyber Security Services. “Our flat-rate pricing model gives our customers the knowledge to know exactly what the investigation will cost, allowing them to better manage their budgets, staff and manage the expectations of the board.”
How KDR works:
“Brands, reputations and bottom-lines are won and lost after a cyber incident by how a company responds. Decisions need to be made extremely fast to find the leak, make repairs to the digital infrastructure and begin the process of communicating to employees, clients and stake holders,” said Ed Goings, Cyber Response Leader for KPMG Cyber Security Services. “By giving our customers a strategic report and plan within hours, instead of days and weeks, our customers are better prepared to answer questions about what has occurred in a timelier manner.”
